'COLONEL OWEN COUSINS' Peony (Paeonia x lactiflora 'colonel owen cousins')
AVAILABLE ONLY IN FALL!
When a flower bud grows to the size of a tennis ball before even opening, you know you're about to witness something truly special. This astonishing peony bears bomb-shaped, 8-10" blooms that are not only unbelievably large but breathtakingly beautiful. The ivory globe of beautifully crinkled inner petals is framed by a row of large, white guard petals tinged in salmon-copper. A gorgeous combination of clean edges and sumptuous, fragrant, crepe-center with a coppery glow. Head and shoulders more interesting than most whites. Early flowering. Height to 30".
Available only in the fall as bare roots. 3/5-eye
